    These look like the standard Tuya-based device. Probably running an ESP8266 or ESP8265 chip. Should be easy enough to flash with Tasmota.

      I agree, these look identical to the Brilliant Smart plugs. Depending on the firmware they ship with, they might even be OTA flash-able with Tuya-Convert.

      iDigital seems to be a brand that just slaps their logo onto all kinds of OEM products.

    •  

      It says on the front of the packaging that they run using the Tuya Smart App.

    •  

      Can someone please explain why tasmota is better than the original one?

      •  

        Tasmota is open-source firmware. They don't send your data back to some Chinese server, they don't require external internet access to work directly and using Tasmota and Hass.io you can automate your whole house much better than the integrated apps.

    An always on device that is generic OEM. I'd value my house and family's safety more than $9.

      If it makes you feel any better they're most likely manufactured by TuyaUS. They manufacture the same plugs for Kmart/BigW under the Mirabella brand as well as the Brilliant Smart brand you can find elsewhere. Plus another 1000+ brands who slap their logo on the device and call it a new product.

      Lol…. I think you'll find your home is already full of generic products with a "Western" brand stamped on the front.

      The only difference being the premium you're paying.

      Plug in a power board and several strong heaters and triple the fuse wire and grab some popcorn…

    Are they Zigbee/Hue compatible?

    • +1 vote

      No. Wifi

      •  

        That doesn't exclude compatibility… There are smart plugs that mesh with Zigbee and/or just straight to the hub via WiFi.

        This looks like I'd need to download the app to set-up, then connect it to Google Home to manage, which is fine.

        • +3 votes

          Correct - they are direct-to-Wifi devices, connecting to a cloud service and controlled by smartphone app (Tuya or equivalent) and Google Home/Alexa.

        •  

          It does exclude compatibility. Devices usually only communicate via one type of protocol.
          This one communicates via WiFi only, just like your zigbee/zwave devices wouldn't communicate over WiFi
          That being said, flash it and then control it via MQTT (via WiFi)

          •  

            @XeSSiV: Heaps of power-points/boards, lights, sensors etc. have multiple communication protocols. Hell all the new Hue lights now have bluetooth and zigbee for example. Cheers though, I'm popping down later to grab some, gonna flash them with Tasmoda and see how they go for fish tank lights.

            •  

              @TogTogTogTog: I would love to hear if they're OTA flashable out of the box. Soldering on a serial connection is a pain…..

              Having said that: once you have Tasmota on them, they're pretty painless.

          Hub anything you wish, 433MHz devices too

  •  

    These look to be identical to the Mirabella Genio ($19.50 at K Mart). I wonder if they work using the same app?

    • +2 votes

      Yep, almost certainly. These are all Tuya-compatible devices and the apps are just re-branded Tuya clones as well.

    Looking to buy power plug with power meter
    Dont think this one have that.

    • +3 votes

      no it doesn't. but I accidentally found out the Medion smart plug sold at Aldi for $10 has energy meter but it is not advertised on the pack. (or I was not paying attention). Another option is the Kogan smart plugs with energy meter.

  •  

    Thanks OP. got the last one

  •  

    None at my local store, sold out

  •  

    I bought 5 xiaomi smart socket in $20. They support alexa and google home.

    Coles stores indivudually at fance prices are dumping all Mirabella Smart Home stuff. Cheapest I got the plug is $5. Some still sell it at $30. Kmart 19.50

    Got some bulbs in white for $2.50, color change $5 but other stores want double.

    All in all it is all 2.4GHz too many devices in your house might stop the wifi printer or at least slow you down.

    Every brand has their own app and Alexa needs to aquire skills but may only do part what the app can do. Any Google freaks here to change colour and intentity by voice?

    Grabed 4 from my local reject shop, tuya-convert worked with no issues. Pulled one down to show the internals, it and built a ESPHome yaml file. Here: https://github.com/ozeraser/ESPHome/tree/master/iDigital%20S...

    •  

      Excuse my ignorant but what does this actually do?

      •  

        Its a config to support an alternate firmware and a custom smart home hub system (ESPHome and Home Assistant).

        Its for those of us that don't want different apps all giving our data to the "cloud", and want to make custom solutions and dont want a million apps selling our data :P

    •  

      Thank you ozeraser.
      I got some and tuya-converted them to Tasmota. FYI for the settings in Tasmota, you can get it from here.
